Du’s copper carving is a kind of craftsmanship using self-made tools to carve figures, flowers, birds and landscape views on the surface of brass or cupronickel daily supplies such as ink boxes, paperweights, censers, tea caddies, teapots, hookahs, wine vessels and plates.

The copper carving works are popular with collectors. It is a demanding work to carve the “copper painting”. Historical figures and events are often selected as subjects of the artistic work. It would help to create a simple and tranquil atmosphere together with the writing brush, the ink stick, the ink slab, Xuan paper and other articles in a traditional Chinese style study.
